Percussion Tradition




Afropop listeners know the signature voices of Africa's Salif Keita, Baaba Maal, Khaled, and others. Today we'll tune up our ears to some of the continent's great drumming voices--fuji and juju in Nigeria, sabar in Senegal--and to the travels of the drum to the Americas--samba in Brazil, rumba in Cuba, salsa in Puerto Rico and more. This show takes us into the polyrhythmic, multiple voices of live performances and into the homes of some of the world's greatest percussionists.

In our part of the world, the drum is more than just an instrument. It is a symbol for building communities and teaching social skills. We are a proud people whose tradition is a living testimony of how to live in cohesion.
Long live Africa, the cradle of human civilization.
